Redwood Purchases Stone Ridge in Colorado Springs

Chicago, IL, November 21, 2014 – Redwood Capital Group, LLC, a Chicago-based multi-family investment firm, is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Stone Ridge, a 280 unit apartment complex in Colorado Springs, CO.

Redwood, headed by partners David Carlson and Mark Isaacson, owns and operates 30 multi-family properties totaling almost 10,000 units in multiple markets throughout the Midwest, Southeast, and Southwest. The firm expects to close approximately $175 million in total acquisitions by year-end.

Stone Ridge, located at 1844 Ralphs Ridge in Colorado Springs, consists of 14 three-story buildings situated on 18 acres. Built in 1986, its 280 one- and two-bedroom apartments range in size from 497 to 908 square feet. Redwood will implement a moderate value-add strategy involving fully upgrading the non-renovated unit interiors and fine-tuning a majority of the partially upgraded units, substantially renovating the property’s clubhouse and other amenities, and addressing various minor deferred maintenance needs. In total, Redwood plans to spend approximately $1.1 million on capital improvements.

“Stone Ridge’s location in the South Central submarket of Colorado Springs boasts the second-highest rents and second-lowest vacancy in the city. The asset’s location also offers remarkable views of the skyline and mountain-scape making it a highly sought-after residential area. We are looking forward to updating the asset and escalating its value within this vibrant submarket,” said David Carlson, a managing partner at Redwood.
